'Star Wars' Billy Dee Williams Comes Out as Gender Fluid



In a recent interview the 82-year-old actor opened up about his gender and reflected on his career.
"I say ‘himself’ and ‘herself,’ because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine. I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself. I never tried to be anything except myself. I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously.”

The actor also reflected how playing Lando opened doors for him and other actors of color including The Rock and Jamie Foxx, who both say they are indebted to him for their careers. 

Lando marked the inclusion of “a complex Black character” in a genre that still remains “notoriously white.”
